    Hey all, I've recently got back into starcraft 2 and after updating the game to its newest state and trying to play I was consistently getting 1-10 fps whenever there was even a small fight. I was wondering if this was just a game issue but after trying several games and using a benchmarker test I was still getting seriously low fps. I have done many things to trouble shoot such as:
    1) updating my nvidia graphics driver (GeForce 540m for a XPS 15 laptop)
    2) adjusting my graphics settings either way to see if it changed anything
    3) Trying to use my integrated graphics instead
    4) uninstalling and reinstalling starcraft
    5) I did a rough job of cleaning out the fans
    6)I tried overclocking to see if that made a difference(I maybe got 10-15 fps)
    7) Defragging my hard drive
    8) Virus scan(Windows security essentials)
    9) CCleaner

    I also tried monitoring my temperature of it using msi Afterburner and even after having it try to run medium to ultra graphics through a benchmark test the max temperature was only around 76 degrees celsius.
    So as of right now the game is barely playable and if anyone has any ideas as to what my problem would be it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yeah I understand except it was getting no activity and I thought this category could be more applicable.
